The Saints meanwhile finished with 16 total yards after the 1st quarter.
Kansas City scored again at the beginning of the 2nd quarter to make it 14-0.
Eventually in the second quarter, the Saints would get rolling after a long 51-yard throw from Drew Brees to Emmanuel Sanders.
Two plays later, Taysom Hill would rush in for a touchdown to cut the lead to 7.
Right before halftime, the Saints forced a fumble on a punt return. The ball rolled into the endzone and Alex Anzalone couldn't hop on it before it rolled out of the back of the endzone.
The Saints took a 15 to 14 lead in the 3rd quarter before the Chiefs put up 15 unanswered points to take a 29-15 lead at the beginning of the fourth quarter.
The Saints would get some momentum after forcing a Patrick Mahomes fumble. That would lead to a Alvin Kamara jet sweep touchdown to get back into the game and make it 29-22.
